Okay – enough of the A kick. Here’s the quick math on my day at the Aquarium:
Aidan + Amazing first graders + Absolutely fabulous chaperones + Abundance of fish and sharks and otters and jellyfish = Awesome afternoon (and morning – just had to get the A in)
That's my baby. Isn't he just so stinkin'
Anyway- the whole trip was FUN! After learning more about turtles than I know about math, I toured the aquarium with five kids in tow—okay—it’s more like they were five chocolate labs on their first walk. We watched sea otters at play, divers swim with sharks, and saw, like, a katrillion fish. I even managed to sneak a little research in for a future writing project.
I heard TONS of April Fools jokes. And played Simon Says one too many times.
Most importantly, I was reminded all day how much I love being around kids.
Why? Because they're hilarious! First graders say and do the CRAZIEST things. They’ve got more vitality than an Energizer Bunny on crack. Being around them makes me feel young and old at the same time. And I definitely understand their need for naps because I totally zonked on the bus ride home.
So yeah. The Aquarium. Funsville. How about you? Did you do anything FUN lately?
PS—you have an eel on your head.
Did I make you look?)
